Demonstrating Security's Business Impact Through Operational Effectiveness

This resource is published by McAfee


Security teams are under growing pressure to enable business goals. There is growing momentum among chief information security officers (CISOs) to reposition their teams' value propositions: away from being technical experts and toward a true business support function that aligns with business outcomes such as cost reduction, risk management, and digital trust.

IDC's research shows that security has made progress in breaking down negative perceptions among the business, and that CISOs have a target set of attributes to develop. But what practical steps can be taken to demonstrate progress along these paths?

This report seeks to set out three levels of maturity for security teams to benchmark themselves against. It also uses IDC's research to provide evidence of the business benefits on offer.
